January 1 – December 31, 2010

Kate at Kate’s Book Blog is reviving her Short Story Reading Challenge for 2010. I loved this challenge in 2008, and Kate gives readers a choice of participation level – so I am in! I’ve chosen:

Option 5: This is the custom option under the rubric of which you can tailor your reading list to best meet your personal reading aspirations.

I am going to read 5 short story collections during the year by authors I have not yet read. Here are some options which I already have on my shelves:

  1. The Secret Lives of People in Love by Simon Van Booy – COMPLETED June 27, 2010; rated 4/5; read my review.
